    Default Can someone ID these ?

    I just received a bunch of live rock with lots of living things on it. I know the one pic is ricordia, but its a weird looking piece, the mouth sticks out about 1/2" plus waving tenacles on the ends.

    The other small rock with trumpet on the sides has a huge patch of a bubbly Jelly like substance. I thought at first an egg sack, but now I think its a pest of some sort? any ideas

    First pic is either a ric or a hairy mushroom. If you just got them in then the mouth (and possibly the tentacles) may be a result of shipping/acclimation stress. If lighting and flow are right they should settle in and show their true morphology.

    Second pic I can't see the jelly substance well enough to be able to help with an ID but my best guess is a sponge of some sort. The trumpet things look like recently moves mushrooms but thats also tough to tell from the picture.
